Author Guidelines

Please read the following before preparing your work:

  1. Submissions must be written in APA style using wording that is easy-to-understand by everyone working within the field of education, including new teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, and staff. Writing, videos, or podcasts created with students are welcomed.
  2. All documents submitted should be something new to the field, and a maximum of 2,500 words (not including references), with videos/podcasts at a maximum of 20 minutes.
    • Research Briefs – qualitative and/or quantitative studies, including action research, summarized succinctly
    • Conceptual Articles – practical research-based strategies or methods
    • Trending Topics – presentation of a topic worthy of discussion that is affecting your work with potential research-based suggestions provided
    • Storytelling – personal narratives or experiences from the field with potential research-based suggestions provided
    • Book / Resource Reviews – Description of a book, website, podcast, or other material along with ways you have used the information. (It is not a critique.)
      • Podcasts / Videos – Any of the above can be accompanied by a professional quality podcast or video, or you can solely provide the information above through a podcast or video (with just a title and a short summary in writing).
  3. Multiple simultaneous submissions are not accepted.
  4. To abide by the double-blind peer review process, please remove author names from all text submitted and replace the names with the word author. For example, (Jollie, 2022) would be (Author, 2022). Replace titles of author's article(s), if mentioned, with "REMOVED FOR PEER REVIEW".
  5. Work submitted should not have been published elsewhere nor should it be under review through another venue.
